“I’ve always known the Gods had a sense of humour. Why else would they put us all on the back of a giant turtle? Of course, I had assumed I was in on the joke. As it turns out, I, Moist von Lipwig am the butt of it. (…)
There is always an angle. I have come to realise it’s the one thing in life you can rely on. The trick is finding that angle. (…)
I’m a firm believer in the saying “you can’t fool an honest man”. It was on this premise I built my career. Rob, trick, forge, embezzle; I can’t deny I did every trick in the book. And when I finished the book of cons, I started writing chapters of my own.” - Moist von Lipwig
“You see sometimes, when has made such a fowl and tangled mess of his life that death appears to be the only option, an angel appears and offers him a change of life. I should like you to think of me as that angel. I’m offering you a new life… and a job.” - Lord Havelock Vetinari
Moist: But… Who cares about the post office? No one posts things anymore. It’s all Clacks, Clacks, Clacks; look at it.
Vetinari: Do you play thud Mr Lipwig? It’s a fascinating game. My current opponent is far away in Überwald and we play by Clacks Well, that is the theory, but there are so many service breakdowns. Now as a disgruntled customer I should be able to take by business elsewhere, but with no postal service I am stuck. And I don’t like to be stuck Mr Lipwig.
Moist: But why me?
Vetinari: Because wheels are in motion, Mr Lipwig. Wheels within wheels.
Thin, pale, and clad all in dusty black, the Patrician always put Ridcully in mind of a predatory flamingo, if you could find a flamingo that was black and had the patience of a rock.

You need a special kind of mind to rule a city like Ankh-Morpork, and Lord Vetinari had it. But then, he was a special kind of person.

My Moist Von Lipwig Cosplay:
I uploaded some photos on here a couple of months ago, I decided to upload the rest today. I loved being him, even though I wasn’t feeling too well on the day. The location of the convention doesn’t really work for Discworld, not gonna lie, but we made the best out of what we had. I can’t wait for the group in July 8D I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, having people shot “YOU’RE MOIST” at you is as awkward and as funny as you’d imagine it to be. Although considering I wasn’t expecting to be recognised at all, it was incredibly sweet.
All photos are by RavenBlakh, but the last two are edited by me.
